I found this skirt at the thrift shop for 1.50 and loved the polka dots.  At a size one or two it wouldn't fit my right thigh so I thought it would make a cute dress for my daughter.  



All I did was take in the sides and use the leftover fabric for straps.  I kept the zipper in the back and she loves it.

That is really cool.  Now I'll have to look for cool, too small skirts at the thrift.

Your daughter is so cute, I like the dress too. Great way to reuse an awesome skirt, to an even more awesome dress.

Thank you all for your nice comments.  It was such an easy dress to make,I think it only took an hour.  I can't wait to find more skirts at the thrift store.
